The Revelstoke RCMP reported that two commercial vehicles collided head-on on the Trans-Canada about 35 kilometres east of Revelstoke at around 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17.

One man, who was in an eastbound tractor-trailer, died as a result of the collision. Two other men have been taken to Queen Victoria Hospital with serious injuries and will be transported to either Kamloops or Kelowna for further treatment.

The cause of the accident is being investigated by the BC Coroners Service and an RCMP traffic analyst from Golden.

DriveBC is reporting compact snow, with slippery conditions and limited visibility on the area’s highways.
